Detroit's Richard (Rip) Hamilton went a perfect 16-of-16 from the free-throw line tonight, as the Pistons eliminated the Orlando Magic from the playoffs.

From what I can find on the web, the NBA playoff record for most made free throws in a game without a miss is 21, held by Boston's Paul Pierce in a 2003 contest against Indiana. The NBA regular-season record for a perfect free-throw night is 23 made, by Dominique Wilkins.

During the 2004-05 regular season, Hamilton recorded a 20-for-20 free-throw game.
